International fees and financial support
Undergraduate International Scholarships
Over 100 scholarships will be available for entry in 2016 to new self-financing full-time students eligible to pay international fees.
These scholarships will be to the value of 25% of the programme tuition fee and that value will be credited to the student’s tuition fee account.
The Loughborough University International Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of outstanding academic achievement and potential. Each scholarship will be for the first year of study only.
Scholarships are only available to students who are self-funding, and not in receipt of any other University award or sponsorship by an external body.
Application Process for Undergraduate applicants
International undergraduate applicants will automatically be considered for a Loughborough University International Scholarship.
Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of outstanding academic achievement and potential.
Normally students will be advised if they are being awarded a scholarship with their offer of a place, though in some circumstances the scholarship offer may be sent later.
Any award made to an applicant holding a conditional offer will be subject to the conditions being met in full.
There is no separate scholarship application process.
What is outstanding academic achievement and potential?
Different courses will have varying criteria for awarding these Scholarships. However, in general, students will be expected to have achieved, or be predicted to achieve the equivalent of A*AA to AAA in three full A-levels. Students other international qualifications will also be considered and an equivalent level of achievement will be required.
Only applicants selecting the Loughborough University offer as their firm (first) choice through UCAS will be eligible for these Scholarships.
